RAMALLAH, Sept. 18 (Xinhua) -- A Palestinian dentist died on Friday during clashes between Palestinian demonstrators and Israeli soldiers in the northern West Bank city of Jenin, medics and official Palestinian media said.

The official Palestinian Television reported that doctor Nidal Jabarin, a Palestinian dentist in his early fifties, died of a shock after Israeli soldiers threw stun grenades at Palestinian demonstrators in the city on Friday.

Wisam Baker, director of Jenin Government Hospital, told Xinhua that Jabarin died of a sudden heart attack in the hospital due to a sudden shock. Eyewitnesses affirmed that as soon as the soldiers threw stun grenades, Jabarin fell and was taken to the hospital.

There had been no immediate Israeli army response to the incident of the Palestinian dentist's death.

Meanwhile, medical sources said that dozens of Palestinians suffered suffocation after Israeli soldiers threw tear gas at demonstrators near Nablus in northern West Bank.

Ghassan Daghlas, the Palestinian Authority official who monitors settlement activities in the northern West Bank, told Xinhua that the Israeli army forces opened fire at dozens of Palestinian demonstrators near Nablus.

He added the clashes broke out in the area after Israeli army forces prevented the residents of a village south of Nablus from reaching their lands and farms in fear of getting confiscated by the settlers. Enditem
